The idea for Seeker developed when Ryan and his friends realized that the everyday local deals and sales that provide the most value to the community were nowhere to be found online. According to Ryan, “We decided to use that type of existing value as a starting point for Seeker. We designed a beautiful and intelligent mobile web app, and combined it with a team that visits vendors weekly. We like to stay in sync with the vendor to make sure users only see current deals that actually interest them.” By establishing positive, sustainable partnerships with local vendors, and providing the best value possible to users, Seeker ensures that both groups are having a phenomenal experience using the app.  With features similar to Yelp that allow users to search for “Deals Near Me”, and with unique Daily Deals and Sales for a variety of categories all in one convenient location, it’s easy to see how, “when it’s time to decide where to eat, shop or play in Santa Barbara, is the place to start.”

When asked about his treatment at Drs. Edstrom & Trigonis, Ryan said, “I had a great experience with Dr. Trigonis! I never had braces as a kid so getting them at age 27 wasn’t the most exciting idea in the world, especially working in business development where client meetings and conferences were a regular occurrence.  Dr. Trigonis had a number of options that made the braces less visible and after noticing how many adults had them I certainly felt more comfortable. Throughout the course of treatment Dr. Trigonis had a high attention to detail but I appreciated the quick and efficient visits. As an entrepreneur now it means a lot to have a healthy, good looking smile to show off to the world!  Thank you Dr. Trigonis and Edstrom!” For more information on Seeker and to check out the great local deals in your neighborhood, head on over to!
